Many constraints slow down the massive diffusion of using this material: its nature, its availability, its accessibility; badly controlled urbanization, the effects of seasonal variation such as resistance to changes, medical risks… In this context, what conditions must be fullfilled, so that perish-urban agriculture can effectively contribute to integrating this environmental challenge?
